ROCK Version 1.0 (build 227) stable
Roon Version 1.8 (build 783) stable
500GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVME SSD (Roon Database)
1TB Samsung 870 Evo SATA SSD (Local Storage)
ROCK connected via ethernet to Fritz!Box 7590 router.
Sonos One SL & Sonos Five both connected via WiFi.
Sonos One SL & Sonos Five both connected via WiFi and using Sonos streaming protocol.
I am a new to Roon and have had faultless playback for all of the following devices:
Monitor Audio S200 (AirPlay, WiFi)
Monitor Audio S300 (AirPlay, WiFi)
Roopieee on Pi 4B x2 (RAAT, Ethernet)
The issue is with my Sonos speakers, specicially the One SL and Five. Both connected via WiFi and enabled using the Sonos streaming protocol. Both updated using the Sonos iPhone app.
In short, music will randomly skip to the next track without my intervention and when playing albums, will often skip to 30-40 seconds into the next song when moving onto the next track - jarring in gaplass albums.
This means that whenever I use the ‘Add to next’ playback feature, the current song will end, the queued song will start for approximately one second and then it will skip to the next track. This also happens when I use the ‘Play from here’ and ‘Play now’ options.
Interestingly, when the song skips to the next track, the remote app on my iPhone does not update to show the new track - it still thinks the previous song is playing.
This issue is source agnostic. Local Hi-res files that are converted to work on the Sonos, local 16/44.1 files that works without conversion, Qobuz etc. all show the same behaviour of the song skipping, regardless of any required conversion.
This issue is also remote agnostic. Using my Mac or iPhone and the remote also produces the same results.
I use no DSP for any of the connected end-points, and processing speed is never below 60x when it is displayed at all. I will include some screenshots of what the remote app is showing just after I have observed the track skipping.
I can force the Sonos speakers to play a particular song, but this involves me having to intervine and click the ‘Play Now’ option for the song my iPhone already thinks it is playing. After between 3-5 attempts, the song plays without issue. Then the issue can present itself again at any time once this track finishes.
This makes Roon completely unusable on both Sonos speakers for me unfortunately. They both work using the Sonos app without issue.
Hoping some help can be provided as I am loving the Roon experience for everything apart from my Sonos speakers.
